Macbeth Muet – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

Macbeth MuetFrom press release:

La Fille Du Laitier, a Montreal-based theatre delivery service,
brings you their twist on a Shakespeare classic, MACBETH
MUET: an entirely textless reimagination of this bloody tale
of ambition.

This play is directed by Jon Lachlan Stewart, creator of the Nextstage 2015 hit BIG SHOT.

After winning a great battle, Macbeth is given a vision by three
witches that he will be king. Classic. Soon, his wife gets involved,
pushing the once-loyal soldier to pursue what becomes a barren
dream with a giant trail of blood behind it.

In La Fille Du Laitier‘s interpretation of Macbeth, the entire play
is set on a huge dining table, where paper plates,
candlesticks and chalices become murderers, kings and
magical witches. In a virtuosic, spartan-run of the entire play,
the stage becomes a hot mess, laden with blood, paper scraps and
eggs. Yes, eggs.
